Farmers Market has established new rules for Guest Vendors that began in May 2019. Participation, which used to be free, is now $150 for Homegrown Authors. Because it would be difficult to divide this cost among users all summer long, authors who became regulars last year agreed to pay a share of the cost in exchange for a permanent seat at the table this summer. To allow other members of NMBA to participate for the remainder of the season, we are taking requests for a place at the table for each day one of the regular owners of the site cannot be present. If interested, please contact the owner listed below.
1. The market opens at 7:00 a.m., so sellers must arrive at 6:30 a.m.
2. Each person is responsible for his/her own parking fees.
3. The good news is that the fee of 5% of our sales at the end of the day is no longer charged. Instead, a fee of $15 for the site is divided between chairs at our table, requiring each person to pay only $3.75. (Most sellers at the market, including the coffee and snack bar, sell their wares at a discount to each other, so we can take advantage of that.)
If you belong to NMBA and would like to sell your own book(s) at the Homegrown Authors table, please contact Barbara Ruther for the use of her chair while she is away. Please follow the above rules.
September 3, or Sept. 24: contact Barbara Ruther (firstname.lastname@example.org)
